Since her 2008 MFA exhibition, Home Economics, Jen has examined the impact of conspicuous consumption on rituals and traditions in American culture as well as the ecosystems that bear the burden of industrial production. She has come to see small-scale local production as a useful means of corporate resistance and as one of the greatest benefits a community can offer its own place and the world at large.
